This will be Dunder’s 5th summer at Camp Thurman and his 4th as a Counselor! Before working at CT he attended there as a camper for 7 years. He is about to start his senior year at the University of Texas at Arlington studying Finance and Accounting. Before that he attended Dallas Baptist University for a year. He hopes to be a financial analyst after he graduates as well as go back to school for his masters degree.

Dunder loves Camp Thurman because of the wonderful environment it brings for everyone. He loves that kids can be crazy and adventurous all while learning about who Jesus Christ is and why it is so important to follow Him. Camp is a huge blessing to Dunder and he cannot wait Summer 2017 to start. He hopes he can make an impact in some way or another in every camper he has this year.
